"Get away from my French fries, Mrs. Obama," Beck said. "First politician that comes up to me with a carrot stick, I've got a place for it. And it's not in my tummy."
According to Chicago Sun-Times, Beck's comments were part of an effort to get out the Tea Party vote in November, but he said the same thing last week on his eponymous Fox News talk show, during an 18-minute segment devoted to bashing Mrs. Obama's address to America's restaurateurs. Then, Beck warned that the Let's Move! campaign would lead to global mayhem and French fry riots ("Friots"). Failing to comply with Let's Move! initiatives might also lead to taxation and jail time, Beck said. (Above: Beck on stage at the Right Nation convention)
On Saturday, Beck described Tea Party supporters (and those who worry about Mrs. Obama as the Food Police?) as "good, decent, hard-working people who are frightened for their country, frightened for their children."
But Beck also chided attendees for being from President Obama's home state.
